wow sounds like Bunning is one hell of a guy!!!!!!I'm not a Kentuckian, but I live across the river in Cincinnati, and, while I'm not surprised by the news, I'm surprised at how little coverage it's getting... to the point where I wonder if it's really real.
Bunning seems like a bit of a loose cannon for a long time. His last re-election campaign was one of the dirtiest I've observed -- alleging that his Democratic opponent was a gay terrorist (or, I should say, gay, and a terrorist) because he is unmarried and rather swarthy (though a native of Hazard, Kentucky). Days before the election, Bunning alleged that the opponent sent individuals to rough up his wife. He is very uncooperative with the press, failing to show for local events where he's intended to be the star attraction.
Over the weekend, it was revealed that three individuals who have given generously in the past to Bunning had put all their money on his rival for the GOP primary, Trey Greyson, with no intention of donating to the Bunning campaign. Greyson has over $1 million in his campaign coffers; Bunning has just over $100,000, according to news reports.
Oh, and reports indicate that Bunning and Mitch McConnell do not get along at all... despite being from the same state, and the same party
